-Detachable achromatic 10 diopter macro lens can also be used separately
-A lens with a focal length between 80 and 120 mm (based on full-frame sensor) is required to achieve full size copies, larger frames require a higher focal length
-All metal heavy duty body

Tips for Better Copying:
The best results are obtained with well exposed, low to medium contrast slides.
The opal diffuser at the end of the Digital Duplicator helps to provide even illumination.
A good light source is required. Try different sources until desired results are achieved.
(**NEVER** use the sun as your light source - which would damage your eyes and camera)
Filter effects can be added by placing suitable filters between the camera and the duplicator.
Shooting in RAW helps, you decide white balance later at the computer, with many possibilities which you can view and judge by eye.
Some slides may require you to change from autofocus to manual.
A tripod is recommended to reduce camera shake.
When copying with an SLR camera, use an 80mm ~120mm zoom lens and set the diaphragm at F11 or smaller for sharper pictures.

I'm getting very good results with the Opteka HD2 slide copier. I've got a few thousand mounted color slides I want scanned, taken mostly by my father in the 50's and 60's. I've been working on this project for a few years off and on, but it is very time consuming. I've been using a Canon MP980 flatbed scanner/printer at 4000dpi and felt the images came out ok, but to get the best results from it scanning time was more than 4 minutes per slide. Only being able to do 4 slides at a time made this hugely time intensive.
A few months ago I came across the ImageBox 9MP at Costco.com that snaps pictures of the slides instead of scanning them, as such it takes seconds to do each slide. The results, however, were muddy pictures with very poor dynamic range. (Dark areas would just be black, light areas completely washed out.) The images look something like you'd expect out of a cheap, 3MP camera from 10 years ago. The ImageBox got returned to the store.
I thought why can't I do the same thing with my Nikon D7000 and its excellent sensor, and came across this cheap Opteka slide copier on Amazon. At its low price, I did not expect much but felt it was worth a try. After much initial experimentation, I am getting excellent results quickly and easily with this set up:
- RAW images with the D7000
- 50mm, 1.8 nikkor prime lens
- My LCD monitor as a light source
- Auto focus and white balance, center weighted metering
- Aperture priority at f11, ISO 100
As mentioned by others, the kit 55-200 lens won't work as it will not focus close enough. The results with the 18-55 had drab colors and were fuzzy, also the filter ring on this lens rotates when focusing, making it nearly unusable with the Opteka.

First things first, this only includes a 58-52 adapter. If you have larger lenses you'll need to order a different adapter. Of course, I found out that using the larger lens actually doesn't take as good of pictures.

From another review here is how I would up getting the best possible pictures of the slides.

- Purchased a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens to attach this to.
- Used my LCD monitor as a light source
- Set Auto focus and white balance, center weighted metering
- Set Aperture priority at f11, ISO 100

This seemed to work the best. I imported them into Adobe Lightroom and cropped them a bit and cleaned them up.

Don't kid yourself, this is not something where you're going to run through 1000's of slides a day. If you do it right and take your time it's going to take a while.

I ordered the Slide Copier to digitize some family slides for a friend and I thought at the time of the purchase that if it didn't work that well that I wouldn't be out much money. I was really surprised. The copier couldn't be easier to use. You just screw it onto the end of a lens (using one of the rings that are included). I used the Nikon 18-135mm lens. You put the slide holder into the end and insert a couple of slides. I used a tripod with a lamp (or the window) at the end of the copier for the light source that is needed to see the slide through the viewfinder of the camera. You adjust the exposure and WB on the camera and the zoom on the copier. I took pictures of 3 slide carousels in one day. I used the Nikon Camera Control program to see the captured image immediately on my computer.

If you want to digitize old (or new) slides, this is a simple, inexpensive and remarkable little gadget. For anybody who has slides, why drag out the projector? Just take pictures of them and view them on your monitor as a slideshow or print out the pictures. This is a very good idea for gift giving to any photographer who has ever used slide film.

The Opteka HD2 Slide duplicator has two problems.

1. Some old paper mounted Kodak slides are slightly too large and must be forced into the slide slot. Pliars must be used to remove them.

2. The slide is not in correct alignment and cannot be pushed down far enough to fill the viewfinder, leaving a black band across the bottom of the frame. Thus one must either zoom in slightly to fill the frame thereby loosing part of the picture, or crop out the black bar afterwards using a photo editor.

If I bought another slide copier, it would be the model with the movable slide receiver.

This item is easy to use and works well. I've used this on about 500 slides so far and its allowed me a lot of control. I've decided to provide some info on how I do it to get the quality that I get from it in the simplest form. Other slides I have had to do more work to mostly from damage.

First I snap the photo pointing the camera at my computer screen with an all white background. For this I just leave notepad open. The settings I use are mostly in auto on my Sony A200. The first photo I let it auto focus and then adjust the zoom and the angle of the frame. From there I switch it to manual focus and as long as I keep it all steady I can just pop in a slide and shoot and all come out clean and straight. I also use a remote trigger release so all I have to do once setup is pop in the slide, snap the photo, remove the slide and I'm on to the next one.

From there I use a script I created in Photoshop CS4 to auto correct levels, contrast and color. For most of the slides this does the job just fine. Others need a little more work but most of the time this works and gets great results. So I can just download the photos, load the folder and run the auto corrections and I'm done.

That's just how I have done it and have gotten great results.
